BUCKETS OF FUN!; WHETHER YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A RELAXING TIME OR NON-STOP ACTION, YOU'LL FIND DISNEY'S THREE WATER PARKS IRRESISTIBLE, AND WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN THE FUN GOES ON WITH SPECTACULAR DOWNTOWN DISNEY.

After Florida fun in the sun, cooling down is an amazing experience when it means relaxing at one of Disney's three exciting Water Adventure Parks. You can laze in the water, watch the world float by or pump up your adrenaline with thrills and spills on some of the world's most exciting slides and water activities.

There's something for all the family to enjoy at each of the three different locations . . . BLIZZARD BEACH

Legend has it that Disney's newest water park was created by a freak winter storm that dropped a mountain of snow on Florida. As some of the snow melted from Mount Gushmore it created the winter speed slides that are among the world's longest and most exhilarating. After scaling Mount Gushmore you can slide the 120 feet back down Summit Plummet at 60mph. If you want to race down with a friend, there's the Downhill Double Dipper.

For something more tranquil, lounge on an inner tube and glide along the 3,000ft waterway of Cross Country Creek, avoiding the Ice Cave unless you want a few chilling surprises.

RIVER COUNTRY

This green and rocky land of adventure is very picturesque. You can spend a long day on the lake, feeling like Huckleberry Finn as you fly across the water on simple rope swings, laze in secluded coves and climb rocky canyons. There's no need to negotiated the waterfalls single-handed - just shoot down the rapids in the tube slide.

Children have the time of their lives running around this water park, and grown-ups have a great time too, quietly watching from a sandy bank - that is if you can keep grandma off the slide.

TYPHOON LAGOON SURF POOL

At the heart of this tropical adventure paradise is the shrimpboat named Miss Tilly. She was marooned on top of Mount Maday by a mischievous typhoon which is still blowing up four-foot waves that make the Surf Pool so much fun. The white sands of a blue lagoon border one of the world's largest inland surfing waves.

Dare you go down the Humunga Kowabunga? That's the thrilling 51ft slide that shoots you through caverns at 30mph!

When it's time for a spot of relaxation, there are calmer waters, too, in this lavish tropical landscape - laze under a shady palm in Castaway Creek, or snorkel amongst the shoals of reef fish in Shark Reef.

DOWNTOWN DISNEY

When the sun goes down after a day of adventure, thousands of Florida holidaymakers head for the bright lights of Downtown Disney - an entertainment complex on the waterfront of Buena Vista Lagoon. It has vibrant floodlit walkways offering something for everyone . . .

There are trendy nightclubs, such as the Rock 'n' Roll Beach Club and Mannequins Dance Palace; atmospheric theatres, including the Comedy Store. Then there's the shopping experience in Downtown Disney West Side, for all kinds of gifts, music and souvenirs. Dominating the skyline is the new home of Cirque de Soleil (opening in late 1998).

Downtown Disney Marketplace is home to the world's largest Disney character shop, The World Of Disney.

When it's time to eat, you can choose from a variety of restaurants. Children enjoy the Rainforest Caf at the volcano site, where elephants trumpet as you eat.

There's so much to see and do -just don't try to see everything in one evening!

7 DAY ALL-IN-ONE HOPPER PASS

There's so much to see and do at Walt Disney World' Resort parks that you'll need at least seven days to do it all, so Disney offers a special pass to help you spread the cost.

The 7 Day All-In-One Hopper Pass gives you:

Unlimited admission to The Magic Kingdom' Park, Epcot', Disney-MGM Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom TM Theme Park and Downtown Disney Pleasure Island, Disney's three water parks (Disney's Blizzard Beach, Disney's Typhoon Lagoon and Disney's River Country) plus Disney's Discovery Island Park and Disney's Wide World Of Sport complex.

Freedom to "hop" from park to park on the same day.

Use of Walt Disney World'

transportation - monorails, ferry boats and motor coaches.

Unused days never expire.

You'll save money when compared to the purchase of single-day tickets.
